Gran Habano has officially announced the release of a new line that has been quietly appearing on shelves over the past few months, the S.T.K. Black Dahlia.
The new cigar is a full-bodied creation from George A. Rico that uses a Nicaraguan shade grown corojo wrapper, with a dual binder of Nicaraguan habano tobacco. The filler contains Nicaraguan cubita and habano tobacco, as well as Colombian and Costa Rican leaves. A statement issued by the company says that the cigar offers notes of cream, coffee and spice, with additional notes of nuts and woods in the flavor.
The S.T.K. Black Dahlia is a regular production line and is being released in three sizes, each cedar-wrapped and coming in 20-count boxes:
- S.T.K. Black Dahlia Corona Gorda (5 5/8 x 46) — $9.50 (Boxes of 20, $190)
- S.T.K. Black Dahlia Gran Robusto (6 x 54) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
- S.T.K. Black Dahlia Robusto (5 x 52) — $9 (Boxes of 20, $180)
Each box will be shipped with a Boveda humidity pack inside to help regulate moisture. The cigars are being made in Honduras at the company’s GR Tabaqueras Unidas factory in Danlí.
The S.T.K. Black Dahlia is part of Gran Habano’s boutique line of cigars and joins the G.A.R. Opium, S.T.K. Barracuda, S.T.K. Barracuda Maduro, S.T.K. Zulu Zulu and S.T.K. American Puro. S.T.K. stands for Stay True Kid, a slogan that Rico has brought to several projects.
Shortly this story was published, a company representative confirmed pricing, factory, blend and production details.
